              Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you.

              He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step.

              Cheers.

                Hi robertk27! With AKo in the BB, I get 6 limpers. I'm going to make a standard raise here, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. I will therefore bet 9BB or 18. I want to keep all of my raises standard, so that the opps are continually guessing as to the strength of my hand. Opps that bet more with better hands and less with marginal hands are basically turning their cards face-up to their opponents... something I want to avoid. I flop TPTK and with this many opps in the pot, I need to make a pot-sized value bet. I don't want to bet less, as the opps could then be getting the correct odds to try to outdraw me. I want to make bets where I expect to gain chips, not ones where my opponents expect to gain chips. The turn is a miss for me and with only one opp left in the hand, my standard value bet sizing here is a 1/2 pot bet, so I will bet 101 chips. ---------- One tip for playing ring games... ALWAYS wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds over and over to immediately play will be a very large hit to a player's bankroll. With AKs and 3 limpers (yes the post counts as a limp), I'll make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 3 limpers, I will bet 6BB or 12 chips. I don't want to raise less, as the opps will be getting the correct odds to try to outdraw me. I flop TPTK again and when it checks to me, I will make my standard value bet for having 2 opps (2/3 pot). Due to this, I will bet 23 chips. With one opp in the hand, if the opp would check to me (instead of open-folding), I would make my standard 1/2 pot value bet. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                            Just for reference the STT Quiz, MTT Quiz and the Omaha Quiz have nothing to do with the BAnkroll Builder promotion.

                            Please DON'T DO ANYTHING unless you are instructed to.

                            Brilliant!

                            You've done all 3 tasks and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job!

                            Step Two

                            Use your first buy-in to only play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Post one hand that you had difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyze it for you.

                            Please watch the following video and answer the question below.



                            List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?

                            Then study the Cash Game course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this.

                            So you have 3 things to do to earn your next bonus.

                            1) Play the 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer.
                            2) Watch the Bet Sizing video and answer the question below it.
                            3) Study and pass the Cash Game quiz.

                            Let us know as soon as you have all 3 tasks complete and we will award you with your next buy-in.

                            Best of Luck!
